The Telegraph just published a report detailing the results of a study done by the University of Westminster on the calorie-burning efficacy of horror films. Per the report, watching some of these horror films burns can burn up nearly 200 calories a time. Or in more tangible terms, a horror movie can burn off a bar of chocolate.
According to the study, “viewers who put themselves through 90 minutes of adrenaline-pumping terror can use up as much as 113 calories, close to the amount burned during a half-hour walk and the equivalent to a chocolate bar.” The University of Westminster study measured the total energy expenditure of ten different people as they watched a selection of frightening movies.
